MP3 of the Day #823: The Minutes

 
By on Tuesday, 22nd April 2014 at 10:00 am
 

Oh yes. There is a new album Dublin band The Minutes on the way – release date for ‘Live Well, Change Often’ is the 9th of May in Ireland, but we imagine a UK release date shouldn’t be far away. To whet your appetite for the new album – and if you find yourself as lucky as myself to attend Liverpool Sound City 2014, as the band are playing Saturday the 3rd of May at 10:15 PM at the Zanzibar – they’re giving away the track ‘Supernatural’ for free. With a driving rock groove and a completely infectious guitar riff, you’re going to want to listen again and again to this track. So why not have a listen to the song below and get your free download of it?

‘Supernatural’ follows the track ‘Cherry Bomb’, the album’s first single released to the wild in early March. Both Ben and I highly approve of the song; read Ben’s review of the single here.

 

MP3 of the Day #822: Prides

 
By on Monday, 21st April 2014 at 10:00 am
 

Those Prides boys have a dab hand when it comes to covers. Take a listen to their latest, a cover of Katy Perry‘s mega hit ‘Roar’. They turn an otherwise unpalatable top 40 song (to me, anyway)…into something great. Listen to and grab the song for your very own for absolutely nothing below.

 

(TGTF Exclusive!) MP3 of the Day #821: Glass Caves

 
By on Thursday, 17th April 2014 at 10:00 am
 

So you’re telling me you want 1) charismatic vocals, 2) mesmerising synths and 3) equally mesmerising guitars, all in one song? Glass Caves must just be the one for you today. There’s not a whole lot of information on the band’s Web site – I don’t even know where they’re from – but on the strength of this song they’re giving away for free, ‘Out of Control’, I am intrigued enough to post it here on TGTF. Listen to and grab it for your very own below.

Oh, and if epic hair is your thing, this band has the very high likelihood of knocking Temples off their pedestal. Just saying.

 

MP3 of the Day #820: Wild Smiles

 
By on Wednesday, 16th April 2014 at 10:00 am
 

It’s Wednesday. Hump day. (Is that an American thing? We tried to explain this concept to Little Comets last year and they seemed confused.) Anyway, you’re at the midpoint of the week, and now everything’s smooth sailing for the second half of the week to the weekend. Southampton trio Wild Smiles – think loud, frenetically played rock ‘n’ roll – are giving away their track ‘Fool for You’ for free. A debut album is expected later this year; we’re expecting great things.

Stream the song below. Like it? Download the track for free from their Facebook here.

 

MP3 of the Day #819: Young Kato

 
By on Monday, 7th April 2014 at 10:00 am
 

Having just finished a short stint as support for You Me at Six, Cheltenham’s Young Kato will be heading out on a UK tour later this month and will also be playing several festivals, including Portsmouth Springtide Festival (19 April), Liverpool Sound City (3 May), Live at Leeds (3 May), and all three legs of Dot to Dot Festival in Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of May, respectively.

Ahead of all that travelling and performing, the band are giving away a multi-coloured, high energy track called ‘Ignite’ for free in exchange for your email address. Input your details below to take advantage of this offer.
